Maggie has a boyfriend. She is 4. She actually has 5 boyfriends. Her first “boyfriend” is a nice boy she plays with at school. The others include her brother Nicholas, her dad, her Grandpa Joe and her Bapa (other grandpa). So while I was shocked to hear the word boyfriend from my preschooler’s lips, I am pleased that it just means her friend that is a boy.
I have gotten “permission” for lack of a better word to put an Obama yard sign in our yard! Yippee! We are a house divided so I never really thought to ask. I have the magnet on the car that I drive and thought I would call it a day. But I am so energized over this campaign that I threw out the suggestion of the yard sign tonight and was told “to do whatever I wanted as long as the house doesn’t get egged.” I’ll clean up the eggs if someone were to be that ignorant, but I doubt that to be the case. I pointed out a neighbor’s yard sign and he said “isn’t that close enough?” I answered enthusiastically “No!!” So I will be going to the headquarters on Tuesday with a friend to collect the appropriate campaign materials and sign up for a time to volunteer.
Nicholas hasn’t nursed during the day in four days! Yippee! He seems to be handling it pretty well. Nap got a little dicey today and he fussed a bit when my husband put him down instead of me. I am going to try the on-the-go routine again this week and then see if he will nap at home in bed without nursing.
On the way home from Indiana we had quite a bit of wind. My husband checked the radio to make sure we weren’t driving into a tornado. We were talking about the wind and how much the trees were moving. Maggie piped up from the back “Today would be a great day to fly a kite!” We got her a kite at the end of summer and never had a windy enough day to fly it. She was right, it would have been a good kite day – had it not been raining and sooo windy that the kite would disintegrate in a matter of minutes. You can’t blame a girl for trying.
And she forgot about the Oreo cookies! Didn’t even eat one. Hah!
I’m starting to see the business of the holiday season fast approaching. I have a few projects due this week, and a few big ones due in the next month or so. Add to that the campaign trail, general care and well being of my family mixed with about 7 birthdays, Halloween costumes, school newsletters, and getting the FUNK out of my tub… I could go on. I better get organized in the next couple of days, because it’s about to get crazy!
Sorry to anyone who has gotten whiplash from reading this post. It’s a bit here and there, but it’s a glimpse of what goes on in my head! This actually includes a bit of editing. You don’t want to see the version that transpires with all the extraneous thoughts that truly take place…
